pipex seem quite expensive

We are looking for a 2mb+ connection for our new branch in Kingston upon Thames and Pipex seem to be much more expensive than the competition.

Unfortunately we are just outside of the range of bulldog who do the best deal in central london.

Anyone have other reccomendations or reasons justifications for the extra cost of pipex?

Regards

we currently use

a bt pipe, but the present office only has 5 people in and the network traffic is quite light.

The new branch will be almost twice the size and so we need a bigger pipe.

We have been checking around and NIldram are looking positive at the moment.

Seems bulldog will be launching in kingston in early 2005 so we may go with nildram until bulldog 4mb is available (a bargain according to guys i know in sw london who already use it)

I'm not sure why they are mor expensive, but didn't Pipex buyout Nildram for around £12m a while back?

If Nildram are offering a better price maybe worth giving them a shot as if they are ran by Pipex the service will hopefully match.


Anyways, ADSLguide.org must be one of the best places to discuss this.

I don't see why it shouldn't work. Do you mean a broadband modem that will work with a mac, i.e. the hardware? A broadband connection is more or less the same as a dialup connection or a network connection - something which all modern computers can handle.

Hi,

Bt's wont work with my OS 10.3 will work with older systems!! like 9.1 or 9.2
They have an online checker, and my OS is not compatible!

Tiscali dont do it for MACs' either,
"Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000 Professional or XP. Macs are compatible with Broadband but are not supported by Tiscali. "

The modem's not a problem, they are easy to get hold off, I guess its a software problem from the providers, the dial up etc | who knows! I dont understand it myself, what the difference is, and why it wont work.

Just wondered if anyone else out there might know where to go!

onetel

I have used Tiscali for one year without any major problems. However, I have now changed to OneTel because they provide a static IP address and are slightly cheaper then Tiscali.

In the end all the broadband comes from BT so connection problems should not be a problem.

If I am wrong on this please correct me.

Thanks,

As a Nildram user I'd hope that Pipex Customer service would equal or match Nildrams, on the odd occasion I've had to use their customer service they have even phoned back when they said they would.

Try getting that sort of service out of the bemoths of this industry like BT, Tiscali and Wanadoo. I do pay more than most people, but I think its worth it for the Customer Service and knowledgeable technical support.

Its a silly question have you thought about bonding a couple of 1mb conections together (you may find the distance from the telephone exchange for a 1mb from buldog is greater than a 2mb)
it may work out cheaper as well than renting a 2mb from pipex.....however I can say that all the time I had a pipex conection I did not have a single problem so would recomend them to anybody.
